Time and Impermanence

The isolation and dread that has been ever present in the past few years propelled me to greater awareness of the ephemeral life cycle of nature around me and to deeply reflect on my life and destiny. I turned to my own aging body as the photographic subject experiencing both sovereignty and power as a woman who is aging. The optical lens records images closer than the human eye can focus, hiding nothing and disclosing every pore and physical deterioration. I found intimacy and union I was missing through my walks in nature, and now recognized mortality all around me; in the skin shed by a snake, the tiny skeleton of a mouse, the aging tree limb too fragile to stand alone.
